Questions & Answers


What can I do to maintain my weight during the holiday season?

Holidays are for relaxing and having a good time. It is only natural that you will be eating out more often with friends and family. Don't stress about it. Eat food that you like and enjoy.Weigh yourself once a week, and if you have gained weight in comparison to the previous week, eat only fruit and vegetables on Friday (just before the week-end!) Enjoy your holidays!

Can you advise on food allergies?

When your child is diagnosed with food allergies a visit to your dietician will hgelp you to plan your child's allergen-free diet. Not all dieticians are qualified in this field. A registered dietitian is a food and nutrition professional who has met certain academic and professional requirements.We will discuss your child's normal eating habits along with symptoms that have occurred with the ingestion of suspected or positive test foods. The nutritional needs of your child will be compared with the current diet to determine if more nutritionally dense foods or if supplements are necessary. A meal plan will be defined, food/symptom diaries provided, lists of foods to avoid and suggestions for meals and foods to use provided. Follow-up visits will be scheduled to discuss progress and concerns.

How do I safely lose weight after giving birth?

Women are encouraged to breastfeed, but are advised against dieting while breastfeeding. Women who feed their babies with breastmilk only for the first six months may require an additional calories a day, but this may differ between individuals, and some of these additional calories will be derived from fat stores built up during pregnancy.Dieticians are able to provide detailed programs for women who want to lose weight and about maintaining a healthy lifestyle before, after and during their pregnancy.

What if I have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, diabetes,cardiovascular disease, or high blood pressure?

Food has an impact on our blood sugar levels, heart, arteries and veins. By changing your diet and lifestyle you will lower your blood sugar numbers, strengthen your heart and prevent heart attack and stroke.A Dietitian can help you modify your diet in this regard.

What about weight during pregnancy?

The amount of weight a woman may gain in pregnancy varies significantly and only some of it is due to increased body fat. The unborn child, placenta, amniotic fluid and increases in maternal blood and fluid volume all contribute to weight gain during pregnancy.Dieting during pregnancy is not recommended as it may harm the health of the child. We advise women to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Contact your dietician for a personalized diet plan during your pregnancy:
